At the time of receiving this image, Maya, I never imagined how much it would be appreciated. It really is wonderful that through this photo I have been able to showcase the creative genius of the architect, Utzon, and the teams of those who built the opera house... and those who in an earlier generation, built the bridge.

Thanks for your awards, too.

Thanks Blue Bayou. I enjoy the Harbour at night no matter what vantage point I am at, but this has to be the best!

Been over your way this year, and enjoyed Berlin very much too.
